Compliance & Risks, the end-to-end global regulatory solutions provider, today announced that it has won a Red Herring Europe Top 100 award. Recognizing Europe’s leading private companies, these awards celebrate outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies, and the winners are selected from approximately 1,200 businesses each year across the region.
Red Herring’s Top 100 list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring’s editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Alibaba, Facebook, Google, Kakao, Skype, SuperCell, Spotify, Twitter, and YouTube would change the way we live and work.
“In 2016, selecting the top achievers was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across Europe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Compliance & Risks embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Compliance & Risks should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
Commenting on the win, Joe Skulski, CEO of Compliance & Risks said, “A combination of innovation, a talent-based organization and our ability to create business advantage for our clients by providing reliable regulatory information and insights through our services, means that at Compliance & Risks we continuously achieve significant year on year growth.
“We are delighted to be included in the Red Herring Top 100 Europe and believe that it is a positive reflection on how hard we work as a company to truly understand and help our clients achieve their compliance goals.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, management quality, overall business strategy and market penetration. This assessment was complemented by a review of the track records and standings of similar startups in the same verticals, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in Europe.
